There are senior members on the forums who serve as Moderators. These volunteers keep the board organized and moving.
Moderators are authorized to: (in order of increasing severity)
Move posts to the correct forums. Many times, members post in the wrong forum. These off-topic posts may impede the normal operation of the forum.
Edit posts. Moderators will edit posts that are offensive or break any of the House Rules.
Delete posts. Posts that cannot be edited to comply with the House Rules will be deleted.
Restrict members. This is one of the last punishments before a member is banned. Restrictions may include placing all new posts in a moderation queue or temporarily banning the offender.
Ban members. The most severe punishment. Three or more moderators or administrators must agree to the ban for this action to occur. Banning is reserved for very severe offenses and members who, after many warnings, fail to comply with the House Rules. Banning is permanent. Bans cannot be removed by the moderators and probably won't be removed by the administration.

The Rules

1. Warez, copyright violation, or any other illegal activity may NOT be linked or expressed in any form. Topics discussing techniques for violating these laws and messages containing locations of web sites or other servers hosting illegal content will be silently removed. Multiple offenses will result in consequences. File names are not required to discuss your issues. If filenames are copyright then do not belong on these forums & will be edited out or post removed. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

2. Spamming and excessive advertising will not be tolerated. Commercial advertising is not allowed in any form, including using in signatures.

3. There will be no excessive use of profanity in any forum.

4. There will be no racial, ethnic, or gender based insults, or any other personal attacks.

5. Pictures may be attached to posts and signatures if they are not sexually explicit or offensive. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

6. Remember to post in the correct forum. Take your time to look at other threads and see where your post will go. If your post is placed in the wrong forum it will be moved by a moderator. There are specific Gnutella Client sections for LimeWire, Phex, FrostWire, BearShare, Gnucleus, Morpheus, and many more. Please choose the correct section for your problem.

7. If you see a post in the wrong forum or in violation of the House Rules, please contact a moderator via Private Message or the "Report this post to a moderator" link at the bottom of every post. Please do not respond directly to the member - a moderator will do what is required.

8. Any impersonation of a forum member in any mode of communication is strictly prohibited and will result in banning.

9. Multiple copies of the same post will not be tolerated. Post your question, comment, or complaint only once. There is no need to express yourself more than once. Duplicate posts will be deleted with little or no warning. Keep in mind a forum censor may temporarily automatically hold up your post, if you do not see your post, do not post again, it will be dealt with by a moderator within a reasonable time. Authors of multiple copies of same post may be dealt with by moderators within their discrete judgment at the time which may result in warning or infraction points, depending on severity as adjudged by the moderators online.

10. Posts should have descriptive topics. Vague titles such as "Help!", "Why?", and the like may not get enough attention to the contents.

11. Do not divulge anyone's personal information in the forum, not even your own. This includes e-mail addresses, IP addresses, age, house address, and any other distinguishing information. Don´t use eMail addresses in your nick. Reiterating, do not post your email address in posts. This is for your own protection.

12. Signatures may be used as long as they are not offensive or sexually explicit or used for commercial advertising. Commercial weblinks cannot be used under any circumstances and will result in an immediate ban.

13. Dual accounts are not allowed. Cannot explain this more simply. Attempts to set up dual accounts will most likely result in a banning of all forum accounts.

14. Video links may only be posted after you have a tally of two forum posts. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam.

15. Failure to show that you have read the forum rules may result in forum rules breach infraction points or warnings awarded against you which may later total up to an automatic temporary or permanent ban. Supplying system details is a prerequisite in most cases, particularly with connection or installation issues.

Violation of any of these rules will bring consequences, determined on a case-by-case basis.

Thank You! Thanks for taking the time to read these forum guidelines. We hope your visit is helpful and mutually beneficial to the entire community.

Question Shared Files

Question everyone..... I thought that if you turned off sharing of files, that your files would not be indexed (and show up in a someone else's search). I thought I had my sharing turned off, but the MPAA is reporting me as sharing out files, and was able to pull up my files, matched up to my IP, through a regular search... Any thoughts on how this happened.. (as a side note, the MPAA notified my ISP, and hence notified me)

Notify them that they're full of crap and you want them to prove that you were sharing these files (which you obviously weren't). Furthermore, you want them to prove that these files were actually copyrighted material. A file name means nothing. What's in a name?
They're trying to scare you and bully you to quit using file sharing services.
You could even tell them that these were all fakes that you were sharing in order to help them and hinder the use of file sharing services. Then they'd really feel like bassholes. How can they prove otherwise? Oh yeah, they CAN'T!

This is pure speculation from them. In fact if you once shared those files, the info (depending on ISP and country) may stay 10 years in ISP servers (law may require in some countries like UK). So you may get this letter in 9 years as they have proofs against you. But they must prove that this recording really happened and that you used it. This means they must have the record of your entire transmission. You can have deleted it or the person who got it (if someone did) after downloading which they have to prove you or the other didn't. This could even have happened without your knowledge (you didn't know how it worked, or did you show them you did with a webcam). Your ISP server may also have malfunctionned or you simply got your IP spoofed by hackers, and they have to prove they haven't.

See how impossible you can make the life of their lawyers. They do know it, so you haven't got to admit anything.

Now something more. You are on the right side by sharing your files. Your government is on the bad side, by selling your freedom of fair use. Under DMCA law which is not constitutional (this is like saying white is white), father copying a DVD (by using a couple of batch lines written in text mode for Perl) on hard disk so his son could watch the movie fluently on his PC could be denounced by some of his child friends and sent for 5 years to prison like some murderer. If he made some new Perl code or modifies some he got and his child shares it with friends, he may be sentenced to life prison with the new 'anti-hacker laws'.

Do you subscribe to the point of view of your government or do you want to share the fight for freedom by fully using p2p. 10 years ago a technological revolution brought freedom against controlled data transmission. Big companies (bribing governement) want to get that freedom off and use that technology to sell your acquired freedom by using inapropriate laws and principle against it. They say copyright is property, but copyright is a privilege they acquired against copy and nothing more. They want to be able to educate you to like and *** on any Boring Spears so they only have to pull a trigger every 3 month to get their cash. But as you think Boring S. is junk and shabby, you just want to hear radios with whatever pleases you and considering Boring S. is crap you just want to hear how crap it is as she publicly spreads her noise everywhere without people will, but don't want to spend one penny on it. On the contrary THEY want to empty your pockets to show your friends that as the ads and radio spamming were telling you all day that BS is mandatory. This is why they are after internet radios now either. They just don't want you to be able to choose anymore !

About copyright and license. One may know that those privileges were granted for the only sake of economical efficiency to promote the invention of any kind. This enables someone to openly create without the fear of being copied (not stolen). This has nothing to do with property, but this word is used today as "intellectual property". This is something very wrong as you may not own ones mind if he has the same thoughts as you do. This is just where this laws are getting us : SLAVERY. Not physical slavery, but more sophisticated, psychological slavery.
